A lot of the Spanish Model 93 Mausers have no markings on them. Since many of them were chambered for 7X57, I would venture a guess that is what he has.

thanks for all ur help i measured and found out that it is a large ring which means its not a 93 if-- if anyone knows what the z number is or if that is a serial number or not

That is probably the serial number, but without more information, I would not want to hazard a guess as to the origin of the rifle or any other information.

Since most rifles have the name or code of the maker, a national crest, or some other indication of the gun's origin, I could only conclude that the information has been removed from that gun for some reason.

It is possibly a Brazilian or Chilean ', they used large rings.
